Mateo Kovacic reportedly turned town a chance to play under jose mourinho at Manchester united with claims the midfielder is unimpressed with the managers style of play despite been a better option in terms of playing time.
Chelsea have an already bolstered midfield with Ross. Barkley, Cesc fabregas, Ngolo Kante, Bakayoko, Zappacosta, danny Drinkwater and now mateo kovacic. How does the Croatian star intend on satisfying his urge of a place in the managers starting eleven with such experienced players already at the club.
The new boss, is a big fan of the 4-3-3 formation and will most likely continue with such at the bridge. Ngolo Kante would obviously retain his place at the center of the park, which is the croatian’s favourable position and Sarri is less likely to opt for him over the French man.
The season is soon to kick off and the manager would be needing all the help he can get, however mateo kovacic is most likely to have limited playing at the club with less experience of the premier league and the mammoth of talents already at the club.
